What is Depression?

Depression is having a feeling of loneliness, being drained, a continuous and constant sadness that makes you feel like having no energy at all. Losing interest in what used to be your hobby, the feeling that is not easily taken care of, may result in mental illness. There are so many types of depression, there are types that are mild and can easily be taken care of with the right approach, and some are too much to be handled alone. Depression is the culmination of things that are constantly affecting your way of looking at things, feeling like all the things that you do may result in something not good.
